Bait and the Kings they bring!

In Panama City, When the bait arrives in late April the Kingfish are sure to follow. That being said, target the bait that they are after and you will be in for some serious fun. I like to free line several baits off the stern while drifting in an area I know to hold Kings. They will usually take your offering and scream straight away from the boat, but every once in a while you will get a treat; they will hammer your bait and skyrocket out of the water when they come up to catch your bait. This results in some very exciting action that you just got to see to believe. It’s like top water bass Fishing on lilly pads, only better Unfortunately, the rough winds and seas have kept us off the water for the past four days. I expect this weather to continue through Sunday, at the earliest. Definitely looking forward to getting back out there and chasing those smoker Kings starting Monday, bright and early! Good luck and tight lines, Captain Troy.

Brownies

Cobia are being caught on the sandbar so if you aren’t actively targeting them then at least make sure you have a cobia rod rigged just in case one cruises by or follows a bait up while bottom fishing. Rig a colorful jig or a fake eel and keep it ready to grab quickly. If you are on anchor, pitch it to him as soon as possible as Cobia are known to take one circle to check you out then move on. If you are on the drift, then make sure at least one person keeps a sharp eye on him and stay with him as someone else gets ready to cast to him. Then Hold on!!
Good luck and lines tight!

Reef Donkeys

The AJ’s are here in force so get out there and put down some artificial’s like a 4 to 6oz bullet head with a curly tail jig. Drop it to the bottom and pump and reel it for at least 5 times off the bottom as fast as you can to entice that reflex bite.
If you don’t have any of those then drop an 2 or 3 oz diamond jig with a treble hook and do same thing.
If you have live bait, just put one out on a flat line and wait. Beeliner’s are also pretty thick right now so use double hook rig with the weight on the bottom and some fresh cut squid.
And as usual we have to deal with the man in the grey suit (shark). They have to eat too.
Cobia have just started showing up on the sandbar’s so if you are ready for some serious action try your luck at one of these. Ive had reports of at least 10 caught this last week.
Good luck and lines tight!
